How can I make a domain name transfer from a dead server?

I'm attempting to transfer a domain from another party to myself using Go Daddy or a similar service. Unfortunately, the person who has the domain currently has told me that the server that it's hosted on is "dead." The email address on file for the domain is on the same server, so domain transfer requests and other admin emails go nowhere. She's made a request (presumably to her tech support) to update that email address and is waiting on a reply.
Is there anything I can do on my end in the meantime? Or do I just have to wait until she gets her contact email address updated? Is there any advice or info I can give her to speed things along?
